voting numbers suggestion that president obama may be in trouble in florida. at this point, in 2008, democrats held a more than 134,000 vote lead in florida. as of yesterday, democrats led by fewer than 21,000. and 70 percent drop off. obama campaign does not dispute the numbers. well, i'm joined by artur davis, national co-chair of president obama's 2008 presidential campaign, a former democratic congressman from the great state of alabama. he has since charged his party affiliation. and also with us former rnc spokesperson. jerry jacoby. >> thank you, lou. lou: let's start, how much troutrouble is this. >> democrats put a lot of stock in early voting, in getting their base out to vote early, they ran up a huge margin over john mccain 4 years ago, because of early voting, one of the reason that democrats are so panicked renew, one reason they are trying to spend every possible tea leaf and discredit every national poll they could looking at hard -- they are looking at hard numbers from data poll numbers could one state they are not behind early vote numbers is colorado. problem is

is a lot for obama -- is a lock for obama. nobody thinks it's going to vote for mitt romney and nowhere in this conversation he said the president has been outstanding. i talked to him three times. he is gushing over his admiration and i'm sure mitt romney would do the same thing. mitt romney is nowhere near mentioned in this whole thing. and so it allows the president to stand next to a republican and evoke bipartisanship and saying that the president rises to the occasion and chris christie looks like a cheerleader. >> cover that state house in trenton years ago. i can tell you if you a republican you better get along with democrats because there are plenty of them. fox 5 political analyst, we thank you. >>> the president gets back into it full swing tomorrow and heads back on the campaign trails for the remainder of the campaign. >> two and a half hours where the polls close at early voting. here is bowie public library. how is it going? >> people are motivated to vote. the line has been long outside this building since the library opened its doors at 8:00 this morning. you see over
-american vote will go to obama and 80% of the women's vote will go for obama, and the other vote, even if you are nice about it and give romney 50% of the vote, how can he be so close to the polls? guest: well, each poll is different. referencing real clear politics, a web site that pretty good as far as trying to bring polls together, there's a question as to how accurate it is these days with one third of households not having a home phone anymore. but you charitable trust did a study recently that indicated 9% of people that they're reaching out to are actually responding. -- the pew charitable trust. in antrim, whether it's from the campaigns or the different parties, if you stayed home tonight, you would get on average five to 10 phone calls. it gets to the point where you shut off the ringer and don't even turn on your answering machine, because you could be on the phone all night with pollsters. lsters after this election will look at what went wrong and what went right, after this. it is science and they are very talented people. a lot of times they are very accurate. i will say that,
. this is early voting and now. 52% over obama 46% according to gallup. look at the numbers in 2008. if we could pull that up. a big difference. barack obama had 53% to john mccain's 43%. what does it tell you? for weeks we have been hearing the media paint a storyline while obama is ahead in early voting. now we know that isn't true. particularly in states like ohio, florida, ohio -- >> dana: nevada. >> andrea: same thing, nevada. ohio fewer dems voted in ohio compared to 2008. 30,000 more republicans have voted. if obama had that lead with mccain and long at 2008, but only led by three points with likely voters romney leads the likely voters by five points. he won bison overall. if you look at the same panorama, it's all over. >> bob: in reality, you talk about the final vote in 2008 versus a week left to go to vote. people who vote early. you have to separate absenteeism from early voting. two separate things. people who vote early are senior citizens and they normally do. >> andrea: who leads with senior citizens? mitt romney leads. >> bob: right. >> andrea: independent and women. 3-point tu
will vote for president obama this time around, why are they waiting for having success of the state and local level? >> hispanics are not monolithic, and when you look at florida, you have a cuban-american community that has historically been very republican. i think people are interested and want to report hispanic candidates, they are good. if marco rubio had had a pro in negation reform position, he would be the candidate, but since he does not, he was not chosen. eventually, i think the more sober voices will have more weight. tavis: what you think is the future of marco rubio? he did not win the hispanic vote. what is your read on his future? >> he is an intelligent man. he is quite articulate. does he play in florida? i am not sure. does he play in taxes, i am not sure. marco rubio is seen in some ways of being the latino face of a party that is very harsh to latinos. >> the democratic mayor acquitted himself quite nicely. what is his future? >> he is probably the biggest star they have the right now. he is a very smart guy. he is highly educated and very different from a lot

. >> mitt romney and barack obama yearn for their vote, the elusive mysterious undecided voter. (laughter) >> stephen: yes, they yearn. (cheers and applause) yes. elusive, mysterious undecided voters. i wonder what he's thinking. (laughter) or if. (laughter) folks, folks, here's how it stands. the electoral kitchen is closing in two weeks and they still can't decide if they want the black-and-white cookie or the decaf wheat thin. (laughter) they're elusive! but we know that they're out there! these campaigns have spent billions of dollars trying to capture them with lawn signs, t.v. ads, radio spots, internet banners, robocalls and, for some lucky ohio voters, an amorous david axelrod with a rose in his teeth. (laughter) but a few and the liesing facts about these mysterious creatures have emerged. >> undecided voter they say typically a single white female between 18 and 29 years old, she has a job with a low income, she did not graduate from college. according to this poll she skipped watching the debate. >> stephen: fascinating. the person who will decide this race is a likely voter wh
%, president obama, 46%. your thoughts on this? >> if these are early votes that is somehow distorting this national average. a agree with the take that it's better for mitt romney's campaign to be in this position because president obama put a great emphasis across the country. i recommend to people he had a piece in the examiner. i found the thing he wrote up today. >> what do you tell!b us? do you have to wait to read it?. >> romney people feel they have a certain amount of momentum in ohio. you talk to them, mayor, you know pushing hard this early voting thing they think is helping them. that they're going to keep the lead small enough so they'll win on election day. so if you talk to the romney people they know what is going on. >> i think it doesn't make sense obama can hold off romney in wisconsin you're seeing a surge in polls for mitt romney you're seeing him probably going to take florida in most of the battle grounds. and i don't know why in and and scott walker earlier this summer by the national party hundreds and paul ryan saying i just don't know how they couldn't win w
us a look at early voting. polls showing governor romney leading president obama 52% to 45% among voter who's already cast their ballots. newt gingrich joins us, good evening, sir. your thoughts on the gallup poll of early voters? >> if it's accurate it's devastating for obama. obama played a tremendous amount of effort into building a ground game. they're confident they can turn the vote out early. they talked about it with a sense of achievement. if this is correct, it's a remarkable result. republicans have been saying during all of the snap shots well, don't worry about early voting because republican voters tend to be older, they love to vote on election day. all of a sudden these numbers i'm surprised and i frankly thought i would not have been surprised to see it reversed and see it obama, 52, romney, 45. so this is a shocking number. but it fits something that you may have seen late last week. gallup took all of this september questions, 19,000 people pretty big universe. looking at all of them together as one group. and said the surprise is that this electorate looks more

that people voting for president obama supporting him in polls optimistic and bullish on the state of the economy. if you're a romney voter or you're leaning towards romney in the polls probably have the opposite view. that's where we're going to see in the exit polls come november 6th. >> all right. thank you very much. we appreciate it. taking the audience to breaking news. new video, president obama walking off the helicopter after the aerial tour of new jersey with governor chris christie right there who's certainly been praising the president's response to the storm. we'll hear from the two of them likely within the hour. or very soon. about to take a ground tour. imagine they're talking with people who lost everything or much of what they have. so we'll bring it to you. another image of the day likely the image so many will be talking about and maybe leading up to the election. one of the chief surrogates for governor romney side by side with president obama as they should be in crisis. like this. and we'll have much more on that. president obama will return to the campaign t

. the battleground point fall state of colorado has nine electoral votes. president obama won that state in 2008 by joining us from denver this editor with the "denver post." what are the top issues for colorado voters? guest: like everywhere else, it is the economy and jobs. energy is a big issue and immigration is a big issue as well. host: what are the demographics of voters in colorado? who votes? guest: 52% are women. 48% are men. republicans have about a 20,000 vote advantage. the state is equally divided. one-third are republican, one- third are democrats, and the rest are unaffiliated. you try to figure out which way they are going to break. they will talk a lot about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically vie

effort to deny president obama any republican votes on anything. which was sort of brutally enforced. i mean, there are republican senators whom i know of, who i voted in health care, for example, against ideas that they hads espoused on the floor of the senate. but they vote against them. and at one point, the president asked one senator in particular, you know, what can i do? what can i put into this bill that will get your vote? and the answer was, you know, frankly, mr. president, there is nothing, because i simply cannot expose myself politically and vote for even things that i support. i mean, that's the lunacy that has passed for congress, under the republicans in the past four years. >> indeed. richard, stop press. we have breaking news. mitt romney, although refusing to answer personal questions of any kind, three-week anniversary today from the last time he answered a question, he has now issued a statement, supporting fema. he says, i'm quoting, as president, i will ensure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission. so once again, here's mitt romney, finger in the a
-- how are you going to vote? do you know? caller: i am leaning towards obama. when i hear him speak, he connects better with me. when i listen to obama speak, more of my questions are answered them when i listen to romney speak. i tend to have more questions and i get confused as i listen to him. it is hard to pinpoint where he is on the issues. my question -- if the guest has studied, i am a relatively new residents to new hampshire, but if you study new residents voting as opposed to older residents, people who have been here for generations, and if you have seen any significant differences between the two that are worth talking about? guest: that is a great question. one of the fallacies in new hampshire is that people move from the state of massachusetts, which is much more government- centered state and new hampshire, moving across the border and then voting democrat. the fact is that is not true. the towns along the border with a lot of new residents, implants from massachusetts, are the solid republican towns these days. years ago, in the 1960's, the cities were the democratic ci

that do actually vote? will it help president obama? liz: isn't it true though in past elections and charles you have pointed this out too, that the democrats benefit more from the early get out the vote campaign, because president obama has a really aggressive grassroots, boots on the ground campaign. will that get out the vote campaign be hurt by hurricane sandy? will it affect the democrat turnout for the president? >> all the early polling, liz, is confirming what you are saying, which is the early vote is going to the president. i think it will slow that down now. the question is, can the president get those people back on election day? but bottom line, i think even more important, the image of leadership that the president is projecting with chris christie helps him in the waning days. charles: really? >> oh absolutely. charles: really? i mean almost all political pundits is good listen as long as the guy doesn't trip, you know, fall. this is one of these things where, you know, it is a good thing. it looks good, but, you know, will it sway an independent voter right now? w
down. vote obama and let's keep this country moving forward. wow. this from sky. i don't know that people will have time to vote. they're busy getting their lives back together. they need transportation. their vehicles are flooded. please keep the conversation going. facebook.com/carolcnn. thanks as always for your comments. next hour of "cnn newsroom" starts right now. >>> and good morning. thank you so much for being with us. we begin this hour with the aftermath of superstar sandy and the full scope of devastation. new pictures in to cnn just about an hour ago. the storm's death toll just in the united states stands at 40. new york city police say 22 people died just within the city. and take a look at these pictures from an nypd helicopter. across the region thousands of people rescued from the flooded homes. many chased to the roof tops to escape the rising waters and today as national guard troops rolls in to overwhelmed towns and villages, normalcy seems so far out of reach. more than 6 million homes and businesses still without power and many people shivering because t
is on the northeast. but make no mistake the obama and the romney war rooms are looking at the nine critical swing states from florida to nevada. this is a very close race. every state matters including iowa and its six electoral votes. i want to talk about that for a second because the latest poll from iowa has president obama leading 50% to 46%. that still is within the gravis marketing survey 4-point margin of error. it is a state that the obama war room won four years ago. it needs to keep out of romney's hands to better its odds of winning re-election. for more perspective on the final seven days of the campaign, we're going to turn to one of our favorite political reporters, carla mayor nucci. it was interesting because of course if mitt romney does not win ohio, i mean, he has to win iowa. >> this has been a battleground for how long now? those early voting -- early voting. >> jennifer: it is only six electoral votes. early voting in iowa is largely in the president's favor. >> same thing in colorado. the obama cam
about early voting a little bit. out of the obama campaign since the first baebt when the polls tightened is ground game and the early voting numbers are very strong and now republicans are pushing back saying, yeah, well they're quote/unquote cannibalizing democrats always going to puvote and pushing the earlier. does the president have an advantage in early voting? >> it's hard to discern whether early voters are people going to vote anyway. the republicans are right. if you move election day voters to two weeks it doesn't make a difference but the democrats are performing well in early voting and some states like nevada and north carolina and florida i think you can make the case that they're performing pretty close to '08 and not an especially close election and other states like ohio and iowa i think the numbers are more complicated but, you know, what do you do when you don't know who the people who are voting early are, if they're people to vote anyway? it doesn't matter. but if they weren't people that were going to vote then they banked marginal votes. i don't think we'
'm barack obama and... i approve this message. >>> early voting resumes today in maryland. voting centers will open at 8:00 a.m. and close at 9:00 p.m. today that is through friday. in the district, early voting resumes at 8:30:00 a.m. and that will run through saturday. there is no early voting in virginia though you can vote absentee if you meet specific qualifications. >>> with just sick days to go until the election, president obama and republican challenger mitt romney are focusing on storm relief. yesterday at red cross headquarters in northwest d.c., president obama said local officials can call him personally at the white house if they get no response to for assistance from the federal government. >>> she was the woman who helped turn the white house in the cultural and social icon it is today. letitia baldridge has died. she worked as jacqueline kennedy's social secretary and before that, they blazed trails, the first female executive at tiffany's and worked at embassies in rome and paris. she later made her mark as an etiquette expert. she said basic manners and kindness are mor
opponent in a big way when it comes to early voting. unlike in 2008 when obama led senator john mccain by 15 points in early voting, in 2012 it's romney that's now running ahead by an impress impressiven points. 52% of the ballots have been cast in romney's favor. it's an eight point swing, by the way, in only four weeks. with all of those numbers in mind it's not surprising that the bi-partisan battleground model predicts romney as the winner in tuesday's election. will these numbers prove to be true? here to continue our debate is fox news political analyst. she's having a panicack, juan williams, and from the five, dana puert dana perino is. it's just aut a momentum. i got a feeling in 2008, you could just tell it wasn't going to go senator mccain's way. >> i think there's a lot of truth to that. there's a mood difference in 2008. republicans for good reason thought they weren't going to win that election. everything was going against them. in 2012 there's a much different feeling across the country. if you look at the crowds that romney and ryan were able to gather this past w
vote by one point and obama wins ohio and iowa by one point that is possible, maybe a one or two-point shift but there is most no way to look at the historof tsounry or try to do the more complex things, the mathematical models unlikely to have romney win the popular and have him lose the electorial college. >> rose: the sites and sounds of hurricane sandy, mark halperin and nate silver when we continue. funding for charlie rose was provided by the following. additional funding provided by these funders. and by bloomberg, a provider of multimedia news and information services worldwide. captioning sponsored by rose communications from our studios in new york city, this is charlie rose. >> hurricane sandy barreled through the northeast last night, the devastating impact was wide-ranging, cities and towns were hammered by the storm that left many without power and other vital resources. here are some of the sights and sound of the storm as scene on cbs this morning. we knew this was going to be a very dangerous storm and the storm has met our expectations. >> it is underassess righ
